The Fredenstein Bento 8 Pro 500-Series Rack is an 8-slot 500 Series rack constructed of the highest grade components. It features a complete linear power supply consisting of a mains transformer and linear regulators. This topology yields the cleanest power to your modules.

The Fredenstein Bento 8 Pro 500-Series Rack outputs ±6V DC 2A and +48V DC 0.25A, 500mA per slot, that's ample power for the most demanding 500 series modules! Whereas, usually linear power supplies can't deliver high output currents. Another drawback of linear supplies is that they are prone to introduce hum magnetically from the mains transformer directly into input and output transformer inside modules, especially when plugged into the slot closest to the supply. The Fredenstein Bento 8 Pro incorporates extensive magnetic shielding of the mains transformer to eliminate induced hum. In addition, the Fredenstein Bento 8 Pro features a monitoring section. A discrete stereo headphone amplifier, VU- meters, and independent slot output selection for L and R channel. If you want to listen to a mono signal, set both selectors to the same slot. The independent selectors give you complete freedom of selecting your source, the even allow to reverse the stereo field by selecting the left channel to the right slot and the left channel to the left slot. The left VU-meter is connected to the selected L slot and the right meter to the selected R slot.

The Fredenstein Bento 8 Pro is constructed of the highest grade components: 1.5mm (59 mil) Steel Chassis, Toroidal Mains Transformer with two built-in thermal fuses, Schottky diode rectification, all Nichicon electrolytic capacitors rated for 105°C(221°F), etc.

    Lots of power and the meters are a great feature!

    Whoever designed the 500 series must have known the accumulation of 500-series models would be as addictive as baseball cards or Wacky Packs...this box has no issues with power, has a great linking feature on the back so I've saved $ in cables, and the meters are a real plus for those 500-series processors that don't have their own meters. It was a breeze to set up. And the price is amazing for this feature set.
